My wife and I just returned from Solera, a restaurant on N.Caswell Street, in Charlotte. Wow!! It was absolutely fabulous. It is billed as Mediterranean Cuisine. I can't recommend it highly enough. It opened Thusrsday, just 3 days ago. I had an avocado/manchego cheese, tomatoes/field green salad with lemon vinagrette---yummmmmm! My wife had the fresh mellon with rasberry sorbet. She gave me the tiniest sample of the sorbet, which was really good, and the melon didn't get close to my side of the table. For the main course we had the best paella I have ever had. Wow, the chorizo in it was really something!! Tony suggested the wine, a Spanish Red that was excellent and a good value. For dessert we shared a warm date cake with caramel sauce -- sinful! Then an after dinner wine and a couple glasses of "43". Best meal I've had in a long time! I think it is in the old Ethans of Elizabeth location 366 N. Caswell St.
Chowhounds, you must try it. Ask for the owner Oscar and tell him Art and Suzanne sent you. You won't be sorry. What a treat!!
Kathleen, you must try this and report your thoughts!
